October is National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog month! Wherever your furry friend comes from, they are a constant source of love and affection. There are millions of dogs in shelters and foster homes in the U.S. just waiting to find their fur-ever home! Here are some amazing ways to help out shelter pets this month!
DONATE TO OUR PARTNER SHELTER: PAWS IN NEED!
Paws in need is a volunteer-run nonprofit right here in Tulsa! They raise funds for homeless animals escaping neglect, abuse, and unnecessary euthanasia. They even find rescues and foster homes for them! Since they were founded in 2019, they have helped almost 2,500 pets find their fur-ever homes!!

BECOME A FOSTER HOME
Not all heroes wear capes! As one of our foster homes, all you need to provide is love and a safe environment! Paws in Need provides all food and supplies!! Our foster homes not only help homeless animals feel love and affection, sometimes for the first time, but it also frees up kennel space so we can rescue more pets!
You don’t need to be a professional advocate to raise awareness! Hitting that “like” or “share” buttons does it too! Spreading the word on behalf of these homeless pets is a HUGE help. The more people that see our fundraisers and needs, the more people can help! Check out the Facebook pages of some of our local shelters:
